Mini March Reading List

March Reading ListWPA poster dated March 25, 1941, via The Library of Congress

Inspired by the blustery lady in this charming WPA poster, I’ve picked up a few books for March that I have been meaning to read.  No promises on whether I will finish them before the month is out, but I am definitely looking forward to getting acquainted with:

In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex
by Nathaniel Philbrick

Auntie Mame by Patrick Dennis

Orlando by Virginia Woolf

Have you read any of them?  What’s currently on your nightstand for March?

    Good book choices! In the Heart of the Sea sounds terrifying but fascinating nevertheless! And I’ve been meaning to read Orlando.

    Currently reading The Bookseller of Kabul, amongst several other titles. Pretty eye-opening for me.

    I loved Orlando! I haven’t heard of the other ones, but I’m googling them now :)
    Currently I’m reading For Whom the Bell Tolls, which is better than the last time I tried to read it!

  • *LOVE* this! What a perfect idea for a month where it is still too chilly to be outside, but it’s so sunny all you want to do is sit by a window and wait for Spring!

    I just finished reading Seize the day by Saul Bellow, I’m heading to the Strand today to pick up a few titles

    “Auntie Mame” is one of my all-time favorites. I just started “The Imperfectionists” by Tom Rachman, one of the many books that are threatening to take over my nightstand.
